in the less haft century. the poll found all-time low in public support for active u.s. foreign policy and growing desire to take a lower profile in the international arena. what do you make of this trend? >> three words, lack of trust. for the last three years this administration and this president in particular have not shown the rest of the world that we can be trusted. let's just take a look at three examples. israel, they were thrown under the bus at least a couple of times. when you spy on someone that's supposed to be your friend like germany, that raises concerns. and the other thing that i believe attributed to this is the fact that this president decided to pull troops out of iraq regardless of how you feel about us being there, we liberated iraq. but if you pull out too soon, that void is going to be filled by the same element that we went in there to destroy. so it's lack of trust that i believe that's causing americans to feel that we are not as well respected and, in fact, we are not. >> well, you know, the president campaigned for the white house back in 2008 he emphasiz
that leadership and what you remember then. congress had to lead america's foreign policy when it came to the issue of south africa. >> it was a very, very tough time. i got elected two months after ronald reagan vetoed the bill and when i met him at the white house that december, he and i got into a rather loud argument of discussion about why it was wrong. he ultimately relented because the senate would have its way. it was a tough fight. i got involved as a student with the movement and led as a member of the city council during which point mr. mandela found out about it and wrote me a short letter that said thank you so much for your support and in bold letters he said don't give up. i thought that was interesting because we didn't want him to give up. it's a tough way to go and to keep this in context. he was up against quite a bit as were the people of south africa. there were a number of determined people here, black, white, jewish who continued it work on behalf of his freedom. >> senator, we have you on not because you are a senator in the u.s. foreign relations committee, but
's foreign policy. >> this is the key statistic. with only a third on his foreign policy, harris, he's desperate for a deal. bottom line this week, we saw with biden in asia, he was unable to persuade the chinese to stand down in the east china sea. unable to get japan and korea working together. bottom line, the obama administration needs a deal. >> that's an interesting point. >> what they want is about -- it's all about appearance. it's not be substance or rereality. those numbers drive this president. >> you think he looked at those numbers? >> of course. that's all they do. >> you're side of the inside on this. >> i've never seen anything like the way they exercise -- we're in trouble, we make up something. we go out and talk about the income inequality. which i think is a real issue, which is an excuse for your program. remember, the reports record numbers of americans saying that we have lost influence in the world and less powerful than we've been. the depth on foreign policy disaster that the american people perceive of this president is staggering. >> it's not just obama wh
's the result of several years now of a foreign policy that seems feckless. i mean, you can start with resetting the relationship with russia right at the beginning of the administration. they reset it and it's much worse. you look at situation with china, looks like we are almost involved in a growing confrontation over those islands but also all kinds of trade issues. then the middle east, things that are worse in syria. things are worse in egypt. things are worse in certainly -- are worse in iran and libya. i can't find a place where things have gotten better since president obama has gotten into office. i have just spent a lot of time in south america. we're not doing too much better there, either. >> you know, i thought it was sort of humiliating for the united states in the issue over syria when president putin wrote a letter and sort of big footed president obama and sort of stepped in and played almost the role of dad and said i will take care of this. sort of rescued us from a military action. but, on the other hand, the whole thing was sort of humiliating. >> the president really creat

and allowing, at the time, sort of which side of the barricade are you on type of foreign policy and you wonder what is the lesson now, right? what do you takeaway from what frankly where we are, american political culture was slow in many ways. where are we, you know, where are we today. where will we regret in 25 years that we were slow in not being on the right side of an issue or right side of history. >> what nelson mandela has said often when he was dealing with his own internal battles within the black coalition in the government as well as whites which is this idea there was a common purpose for south africa after he was released from south africa and when he came president. that's the kind of lesson that can be shared that transcends south africa in his time. where do countries, where do governments of all branches feel they are in it together and have a common purpose to solve problems, to advance freedom, to advance people from all background. i think that's one of the lessons that he already has given. i think it's amazing that chuck is right, i think he was viewed, mandela was in m
. jim baker said on "morning joe" today, this was a time when congress took on the foreign policy, first override of foreign policy veto of a president in that century. >> it really was. first let me say, i'm honored to be with my sister and friend maxine waters, who i think played a magnificent role giving momentum to the divestment effort. just quickly i want to go back and indicate a little known bit of history. >> why was mandela in oakland, california. of all places. yankee stadium, the mayor, mayor cuomo. he came to see you, didn't he? >> i was overwhelmed. nelson mandela. oakland doesn't win a lot of battles over big cities. he said i'm going to oakland to thank ron and his constituency. for this iconic human being to come to oakland to say thank you was an amazing event. we walk out on the stage and mandela looks out into this incredible sea of humanity. he said now i better understand you, i better understand your politics. i looked at him and he said you represent the human family. you represent where we must go. you represent the future of south africa. that was such an incred

. nobody had overturned a presidential veto on foreign policy in the 20th century. you had 37 and 53 republicans, including richard lugar who is still there. mitch mcconnell who said he was in college during civil rights movement and then he was on the side of civil rights and then it got all complicated with affirmative action and bussing and sanctions he said made it all clear again. he stood up again against the president. i was covering the white house then and occasionally they would bring in small groups of reporters to chat with the president on the theor theory w each other. it was during this period the president said more black people drive and own cars in south africa than there are cars in the soviet union and to him that sort of rationalized, this was, you know, communism is the evil system. and you had po to do everything to stand up to communism. i remember clearly he reached for two cookies and said he had half a sandwich for lunch. pat buchanon was a speech writer in the white house then. i recalled this memory to him. he said he wrote that lean. he got it from comme

. it was the first override of a presidential veto on a foreign policy issue in the century. and anti-apartheid leaders credit those sanctions and credit the private divestment movement around the united states and around the world with bringing about the pressure and the isolation that was necessary to eventually humble the apartheid regime. to humble the ruling south african government and bring them to the negotiations that eventually freed nelson mandela and brought him into the apartheid system. the fight here to do that was nothing compared to the fight in south africa, but politically, it was a he can of a fight here too. joining us now is former california congressman and former oakland mayor, ron dellums. he was the sponsor of the 1986 antiapartheid act. congressman dellums, nice to see you. thank you very much for being here. >> it's an honor to be here. i'm one of your great fans, my friend. >> well, thank you. tell me what led you to sponsor the antiapartheid act in the 1986? >> a little-known fact in history is that a group of african-american employees of the polaroid co

by giving speeches, what's the danger there? >> there was concern as he reached out in the foreign policy area. presidents send to do that. what is different about obama is that i think probably at least since fdr he has pushed the limits of executive authority on domestic matters to the limits. on immigration reform he's decided not to and all welfare laws, education, anti-drug laws, he has simply decided not to enforce divisions of the law and the biggest example is obama care where the employer mandate was delayed a year. if you like your insurance, you get to keep it well. turns out the law says, no, you can't. so he directed the state incidents to direct the insurance companies to go ahead and provide the same policies they had had before and also there's no subsidy provided for the federal exchanges as there is the state exchange and these are a lot of examples that more than any recent president has pushed his power to the limit, thus raising the question about whether he is upholding himself to faith fully execute the laws. >> the president has made an announcement, members of con

period. just as president biden dealing with another foreign policy headaches on the other side of the world. he arrived in tokyo. he was met when he arrived there by caroline kennedy, the new ambassador. this as china is now threatening to declare unilaterally control over airspace long disputed with japan. joining me now with all these challenges, msnbc contributor, former adviser on iran to the white house ambassador dennis ross. thanks for being with us. lets talk about iran. president rouhani declared over the weekend in an interview with the "new york times" they have won the right to enrich, just as we in a hard fought battle with emrates, uae, nonproliferation effort talked them into foreswearing the right to enrich. others in the region are watching the way we handle iran. what do you think of these negotiations as far as they have gone so far? >> well, look, you do have a first step. the idea of having a first step agreement is not that it somehow has transformed the situation, not that it produced a breakthrough we're going to be confident we're going to transform ura
will read it to you. how would you rate president obama's foreign policy compared to that of richard nixon? system kevin jacobsen and red buttons. [applause] [laughter] [laughter] >> without getting myself into much trouble, it's like how would you compare a bunny rabbit and a german shepherd. [laughter] [laughter] and i really do worry for the country for the next two years. because if you watch the syrians just go and what is happening in libya, there were 300 people killed in iraq last week and you look at what is happening in egypt and around the world and you look at north korea. the person who negotiated the north korean agreement said the north koreans were not getting a nuclear weapon, which they have exploded cents. it is the person that is helping to arrange this project. you talk about learning nothing. and so i am very concerned and i think that obama has a fantasy view of the world and reinforcing this by the inability to listen. with people around him who are at least as out of touch with reality as he is and i think that it's dangerous. and i think that we have been lucky up
in remembering our history accurately with apartheid as a foreign policy issue for the united states? >> it seems to me that we seem to forget apartheid in our own country. i was jailed for using the public library. i was jailed for trying to use -- my father -- lots of p.o.w.s didn't have the right to use toilets, hotels, motels. we couldn't use a toilet from texas to florida to maryland. we didn't have the right to vote. and so dr. king's victory was over skin color apartheid and political apartheid and changing world opinion. now, that same movement spilled over in a major way to be the impactful force for freedom in south africa against our own national policy at that time. we changed america's policy towards south africa by our own risk and sacrifice, because anti apartheid victory in america led to apartheid victory in south africa. >> rick, what do you think of that and the reverend's point about that interplay, relatively rare to have this kind of success and an international civil rights movement. >> well, we often forget that during the whole period of the cold war, there was actually a

came during a foreign policy conversation at a washington think tank forum. nbc's kristen welker is live for us at the white house. kristen, did the president successfully sell his deal today? >> reporter: well, craig, i think that remains to be seen. but that is what he was doing. he was trying to sell this deal to the skeptics here in the united states, but also to israelis, a lot of israeli journalists in the audience there today. if you look at the polls inside israel, a lot of folks don't like this deal. so president obama trying to convince them of the merits of this deal, making the point that, look, it is a test. it's a six-month freeze of iran's nuclear program that will be tested by inspectors who will go into the country and determine their level of seriousness. he also made the point that of the $100 billion worth of sanctions, this scales back about $7 billion of those, leaving the main sanctions in place. here's a little bit more of what he had to say this afternoon. take a listen. >> if we could create an option in which iran eliminated every single nut and bolt of

"where congress won't act, i will." throughout the obama presidency, we have seen a pattern. president obama circumvents congress when he does not get his way. while congress is currently debating how to reform our immigration laws, the president effectively and acted himself byct ordering immigration officials to stop enforcing immigration laws against certain unlawful immigrants. get hiscouldn't preferred change to the no child left behind education law, he testing accountability provisions. when he objected to the work waiversent, he granted that are specifically forbidden by the statutory text. instead of working with congress to amend federal drug policy, he has instructed p
